Some Moslems spoiling for a fight..any fight, it seems

From the Scotsman...

THE fast-food chain, Burger King, is withdrawing its ice-cream cones after the lid of the dessert offended a Muslim.

The man claimed the design resembled the Arabic inscription for Allah, and branded it sacrilegious, threatening a "jihad".

The chain is being forced to spend thousands of pounds redesigning the lid with backing from The Muslim Council of Britain. It apologized and said: "The design simply represents a spinning ice-cream cone."

I have to say I'm disappointed in Burger King for playing along with such a stupid game. I think the rest of us should boycott Burger King until they put the swirl back, or at least replace it with a swirl that says (in Arabic of course) “Rashad Akhtar is a cry-baby”
